Question about Royal 160MX Shredder
I thought it could be address labels making the blades sticky but my sister puts them her shredder regularly without a problem. I'm a widow with only one working hand at the moment but need to know how or if the cutting mechanism can be removed for unclogging.
I just had mine apart yesterday to clean the paper sensor and remove some paper that fed the wrong way. First unplug the unit. Tools needed Philips screw driver and needle nose. Remove the paper bin and put the shredder on its back then remove 4 screws that hold the base cabinet to the top.Once you have the top off put the top upside down on the floor / table. There are 6 screws that hold the top together. Be careful of the wires for the bin full and bin in place sensors that connect between the bottom and top half's. You can gently lift the bottom up and swing it away to access the cutters. From here you should be able to clean most of the paper. The cutter assembly isn't screwed in but has some wires that will have to be removed if you need to remove the cutter assembly. Also there is lots of grease on the cutter assembly so be careful of where you touch.

UNPLUG THE SHREDDER.
If this model has electronic eyes (optics) to control the auto-start/stop function and you oil the cutters, chances are the optics are contaminated with shredder oil. Take a cotton swab with a little alchohol and clean and dry the optics.
If you removed the top cover, it is a possibility that you disconnected the wires from the PC Board.

Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.

Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.
